important day in the u.s. presidential race. in response to the awful attacks in libya, mitt romney said something that was genuinely unbelievable. and then more amazing, he doubled down on it. this is the kind of thing, the kind of day we could look back on the 2012 campaign and say, yeah, romney just never quite managed to recover from that. here's romney and obama today. >> i think it's a -- a -- a terrible course for america, to stand in apology for our values. >> there's a broader lesson to be learned here, and you know, governor romney seems to have a tendency to shoot first and aim later. and as president, one of the things i've learned is that you can't do that. it's important for you to make sure that the statements that you make are backed up by the facts and that you've thought through the ramifications before you make them. >> we will get into all of that tonight. i promise you will we will do the campaign in detail. but before we do, in an election year, presidential politics has a tendency to overshadow everything else. there's a tendency to only care about real genuinely i

"the new york times" talked to a worker, kenneth myers, an unemployed republican from ohio. romney's cments didn't sit llh s. "the last thing, where he was going on about the 47% who are dependent on the government is hard to swallow. i think i'm part of the 47% he's lking about. but i don't want to be dependent on the government." that's a pretty good indation of where that commenhas taken this campaign. e a ais if ry'mmen in television ads in ohio. it appears to be taking a toll on romney's number. the gallup tracking poll shod romney making up ground with president obama after the democratic national convention. a ek after the fund-raising deo was released by mother jones, obama has opened up a six-point lead. president obama was also in ohio today, delivering a knockout punch. and, oh, yes, he reminded ohio voters where mit

to vote. >> all right. there's been a lot of conversation, congresswoman, about polls o s and who's ahead. we can't find a poll where mitt romney is ahead. in fact, i made the comment, i would like to be in mitt romney's office because i'd like to see their game plan on how they expect to get there, if you know what i mean. what is their roadmap to victory? ohio is crucial. and the early -- and the get out to vote, obviously what we just talked about, is crucial. does it have to be bigger than 2008 for president obama to win? >> well, you know, i don't want to be -- you don't want to put too much stock in polls 40 days out, whether we're up, whether we're down, we're concentrating on that ground game. you mentioned the debates earlier in your opening comments, ed. you know, let's not discount the fact that mitt romney is an experienced and skilled debater. he -- >> he's been all over the map, congresswoman. i mean, the guy has been all over the map on health care, on taxes. i mean, he's -- huh? >> ed, keep in mind, though, he's a pretty decent closer. he's had a lot of time to prepare for

for two years that's true. it's going to fall back into the 30s. if it weren't for the republicans passing the child tax credit, it would fall back to the low 30s. but the majority of people who fall in this category of not paying federal income taxes are either elderly, which means they probably worked their whole lives and are now retired and romney is saying they are not workers, or they are workers who make less than 20,000 a year, which tells you these are people who have crummy jobs at crummy wages. that's who he is insulting. people working at low wages, or those who worked their whole life and are retiring. >> how important is it for the american people to grasp that a tax cut isn't always the best thing for the economy? i mean, i think most americans believe, gosh, if we cut taxes we'll have a better economy because more people will have more money to spend. clearly it doesn't turn out that way. >> in my new book that comes out tomorrow, there's a chapter about how in my neighborhood we voted to raise taxes. for every extra dollar, i have more cash in anymy pocket. my book explain
